Flamingo is a 150-unit housing project in the city of Jamundí. The project was designed and built by Jaramillo Mora Constructora, a company committed to developing sustainable housing projects that contribute to the growth of Colombia, and advised by SUMAC.
Flamingo has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, reflective paint for external walls, insulation of the roof, and energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces.
Efficient-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor, clay roofing tiles on steel rafters for the roof construction, honeycomb clay blocks with plaster for the internal and external walls, and plasterboards on metal studs for internal walls.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
